  •  Yes, the photoelectric potential of Germany (3+ / 0-)

    is about equal to Oregon . . . and I'm talking the rainy, western side, not the sunny, eastern side.

    It's LIGHT, not sun, that makes the difference. (Hence the word PHOTOelectric).

    I will admit that statistic misleads a bit--Oregon has a summer dry season with long daylight hours, which bumps our average up to respectable. No one would confuse us with Palm Springs any time of the year, particularly not on heavy overcast winter days when the street lights stay on. (Call it "vampire weather.")

    And God said, "Let there be light"; and with a Big Bang, there was light. And God said "Ow! Ow My eyes!" and in a flash God separated light from darkness. "Whew! Now that's better. Now where was I. Oh yea . . ."
